How to access your room

keycard
Everything is ready for you to move in, when you've signed and uploaded the contract and paid the deposit.
Note: you don't get access to your room without a deposit

If you want to move in before your contract starts, email us. This may be possible if your room is cleared and ready. Note that you pay from the day you move in.
REMMEN AND BJØLSTAD IV have electronic door locks
This means that you access the housing with the personal key code we send you. You will receive the code by email the same day as the contract start. If it's on the weekend then we'll send you the code friday before your contract start. You'll be able to enter the main door and the door to your room with this code. 

You can tell by the lock if it needs a battery change, the door will seem slow or you'll get a red or yellow flash several times in a row.
